With the injury bug hitting the NHL’s upper tier of goaltenders this season – Martin Brodeur, Roberto Luongo, Evgeni Nabokov, Rick DiPietro, Marc-Andre Fleury – and a number of second-tier tenders filling in nicely, we wondered: “Who are the NHL’s best goalies, right now?” Not who we want for a one-game showdown.

We countdown the NHL teams who are creeping up to that magical $56.7 million ceiling.

If you can pick up players on a roll in your pool, here's who might still be available.

Good or bad, the grapefruit games provide a ton of fodder on the cusp on the regular season.
Sure, it’s only the pre-season, but there were still a few noteworthy performances worth mentioning. Not all of them are positive mind you, but then again, nothing in this world is perfect.
